At Northamptonshire ACRE, we run a great Community Facilities Advisory Service for our members. We give you quality support and advice, helping you to run your community facility more effectively - whether a village or church hall, community centre, playing field, park or recreation ground.
We also keep a Contact List with details and contacts of our community facilities members. If you need to find a community facility in your area, we can help.
